Introduction[edit]

Welcome to WikiProject Intertranswiki Persian, a collaborative effort to improve English Wikipedia by importing and translating content from Persian Wikipedia. The aim of the project is to draw up a full directory of missing content from Persian Wikipedia organised by topic and sub topic as well as to tag existing articles which need major translation from the other language equivalent and begin to work towards creating the articles or improving an existing article. Once the directory is drawn up, the project is intended to work towards starting the missing articles and where possible combine inter-wiki translation with reliable sources elsewhere. Please note that not all content is suitable for transferring and please exercise caution if translating unreferenced material or the subject is controversial. Where possible, translations should be backed by Reliable sources.

Translating and expanding existing articles[edit]

Articles currently tagged as needing translation from Persian Wikipedia as part of WikiProject Intertranswiki are categorised as Category:Articles needing translation from Persian Wikipedia and organized by main topic.

To add a tag to an existing article which you know of that could be expanded from Persian Wikipedia add the following:

{{Expand Persian|topic=|date=}}

The following code is to be applied to categorise an article needing translation in any of the above categories:

  • {{Expand Persian|fa=yes|date=}} for Featured Articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=geo|date=}} for Geographical articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=sport|date=}} for Sports articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=culture|date=}} for Culture articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=hist|date=}} for History articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=sci|date=}} for Science articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=struct|date=}} for Building and structure articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=transport|date=}} for Transport articles
  • {{Expand Persian|topic=gov|date=}} for Government and politics articles

If the article on Persian Wikipedia is worded differently from the English version then the exact article name should be entered into the expand template to enable direct translation. For example, Basmenj would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Persian| باسمنج|topic=geo|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

There are thousands of articles missing that need starting and to be translated from Persian Wikipedia. Missing articles will be listed and organised by main topic and then sub ordered by category or specific topic.
